Black Lives Matter

Central Casting and Entertainment Partners’ global company shut down operations from 9-11am PT on June 9 as a time of reflection for our employees. This was a first step. Over the coming months, our company will create opportunities for meaningful dialogue with our employees and within our industry about social injustice and discuss what we can do as an organization to create change.

Important message from Jennifer Bender

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. It’s been about 9 weeks since our industry went down due to COVID-19 and I, as well as all of you, am sure ready to get back to work! But of course, we can’t do that until it is safe to do so. Having all of our financial and creative resources end so quickly has been hard on all of us. I wanted to share with you that over these weeks we have been actively involved with meeting with our clients, studios and union to partner in what will be the best path to move us forward and get back to work safely. As more information evolves, we will be sure to communicate it out to you as best we can. In the meantime, stay safe, take good care of yourself, catch up on movies and shows and spend time with your loved ones. We are thinking about all of you and hoping we all can get back to making movies and television again soon!

All my best,
Jennifer

Central Casting

Hello Central Casting Georgia Background Actors. Filming has not yet resumed, however, production hopes to return to filming in August. More info to come shortly!

Also, as a condition of working on set, production may require Background Actors to get COVID-19 testing at their testing facility prior to any work date(s). Productions may also require a face mask to be worn while on set.

Please keep this in mind as you submit for jobs, as testing dates are connected to work dates and you need to be available for both the testing date and work date(s) to be booked. Stay tuned for exciting job posts coming soon!
